BONDS ARE TO
RECOMMENDATION MADE BY
Urgent Need of tho Money Prompts
the Chief Executive to Advise
That Instead of Endeavoring to
Forco Hayes & Sons to Take the
Issuo the City Shall Proceed to
Re-Advertise the Bonds After Cur
ing tho Alleged Defects in tho
As was foreshadowed In The Tribune,
the recorder, at last night's meeting of
select council, communicated ti recom
mendation that the $285,000 funding and
Improvement loan be readvertlsed In
stead of delaying further with efforts
to force Hayes & Sons to live up to
their bid, Tho communication sets
forth the recorder's rensons for mak
ing tho recommendation:
Scrnntan, Ta., Sept! 2, 1002.
To the Honorable tho Select and Com
mon Councils, City of Scrantoii, Pa.
, Gentlemen Tho bond Issue recently au
thorized by your honorable bodies, 111 or
dinance, flic of common council No. 67,
1901, known as the "Judgment Funding
and Municipal Permanent Improvement
Loan," was regularly ndvertlsed, as per
the directions of said ordinance, nnd
awarded to the house of W. J. Hayes &
Son, bankers, of Cleveland, O., at the
price of nar and accrued Interest, and
S7.O0O premium, they being the highest
Subsequently, Hayes & Sons refused to
take the bonds, acting under tho advice
of their prlvato counsel. Charles Ii Pan
coast, esc., of Philadelphia, which said
opinion was later reinforced and con
firmed by the opinions of Thomas W.
Ileatley, cso... of Cleveland, nnd Judge
Dillon, of Now ork.
Tho objections cited against this Issue
by these gentlemen numbered two or
three, but principal among them was the
contention that the issue, since It was for
a two-fold purpose, viz., funding an exist
ing debt and at the samo flmc providing
for now work, and, thereby, creating a
new debt, should have been divided Into
two Issues, with separato and distinct
provisions for their care and redemp
tion. Whether thU contention Is well founded
or not Is an open question. Tho opinions
adverse to the Issuo are, at tho most,
only the judgments of private counsel.
The matter has not been passed upon by
tho courts yet, as tho primary purpose
with us is the sale of the bond, nnd this
could only be effected with this house
after lengthy litigation, It has been
deemed advisable, after a careful review
or tho case by the law department and
this office, to repeal the old ordinance,
file of common council No. C7, lflOl. and
pass two new ordinances which will take
caro of our judgments and provide for
tho municipal improvements previously
contemplated. This method of dealing
with the matter is at least free from all
objections and will greatly expedite the
Issuance of tho bonds and enable us to
apply the funds realized from their Sale
to these urgent demands at an early date.
This, we believe, is the most satisfactory
manner of meeting the situation.
I trust that your honorable bodies will
take the matter up at onco and hasten
this lcgMatlon, that these long delayed
Improvements, and the funding of our
judgment debt may bo cared for at the
earliest possible moment. I am,
Yours very respectfully,
W. I,. Council, Recorder.
WBNT TO WORK AT ONCE.
Council proceeded at once to comply
with the recorder's recommendation.
An ordinance repealing the bond issue
ordinance nnd authorizing tho destruc
tion of the refused bonds was Intro
duced by Mr. Vaughan, reported favor
ably forthwith and passed on two read
ings. The new bond ordinances, as re
quired by law will be Introduced In
The couucilmen enjoyed a good
laugh at the expense of Mr. Chitten
den. The ordinance providing for the
purchase of six nnd one-fourth acres
of tho Reynolds tract for $6,400 for an
nddltlon to Nay Aug park, was taken
from the hands of a special committee
on motion of Mr. Nagcll, seconded by
Mr. Coleman, and brought before th2
house on first and second readings.
Mr. Chittenden spoke vigorously In op
position to the measure, characterizing
it as tho "fag cud of n. real estate
speculation" and asserting that the
tract was nothing better than a collec
tion of rocks and rattlesnakes.
The original park plot, ho pointed
ont, was bought from the Lackawanna
Iron nnd Coal company for $ISj an
acre; the Beckett addition cost $310 an
acre, and plot purchased from the Con
sumers' Powder company cost only $180
an acre. To foist this new tract on
the city at $1,000 an acre, he averred,
was all wrong. It was not needed, at
all, but If It was taken by the city, It
should not cost more than $200 an acre.
Messrs. Coleman, demons and Mer
rlman spoke In favor of the measure,
saying tho land was needed to "square
out" the northeast corner of the park,
and tho price was in keeping with that
at which other lands In tho Immediate
vicinity huve been, recently, selling.
Messrs. demons and Chittenden ar
gued pro and con for some time, Mr,
Chittenden sparing no words that
would help convey his most vigorous
opposition to the measure. Finally a
motion to Indefinitely postpone fiction
was killed, and on motion of Mr. dem
ons the ordinance was recommitted un
til tho now bond ordinances nro Intro
duced, and the money necessary for
the purchase of the tract provided.
JNTllODUCND BY CHITTENDEN.
A few minutes had gone by when
suddenly the proceedings were brought
to a stop by bursts of laughter, loud
anil prolonged, from a group congre
gated about Mr. Coleman's desk.
Mr, Coleman had thought ho remem
bered that It was Mr. Chittenden him
self who Introduced tho ordinance for
tho purchase of tho Reynolds tract, and
looking up tho orlglnul immsure found,
true enough, that Mr. Chittenden was
credited with Its paternity, "Intro
duced by Mr, Chittenden" was plainly
written across tho envelope,
As word of the discovery spread, the
laughter spread and soon the whole
house was In nn uproar, Mr, Chitten
den was plainly dlsoomllted, but his wit
came quickly to his rescue.
Rising to a question of personal privi
lege, ho stated that It was true he hod
Introduced the ordinance In question,
but did so at the request of the gentle
man from tho Seventeenth, Mr, dem
ons, its real father, who could pot at
tend the meeting at which the ordi
nance was Introduced, and asked Mr.
Chittenden to Introduce U for him.
That this was true, ho culled on his
fellow-councllmep, who were present at
the meeting, In question, to bear wit
ness, "I stated at the tlino," said Mr,
Chittenden with vehemence, "that I
was Introducing this and some other
ordinances at the request of Mr, dem
ons." Mr, demons denied that any such
thing was so, and appealed to the mln-
